What is an HVAC system?
HVAC stands for heating, ventilation, and air conditioning. The acronym refers to a series of systems that cool, heat, and move air between indoor and outdoor areas in buildings, such as homes. HVAC systems of all kinds are found in Arnprior homes, from furnaces and air conditioners to heat pumps and water heaters. Regardless of the type of unit you have in your Arnprior home, the purpose of an HVAC system is the same: to give homeowners more control over the temperature, airflow, and humidity levels in their homes. Ultimately, HVAC systems provide indoor comfort and for this reason, are instrumental to the everyday lives of Canadians.
What should I look for in an HVAC system?
We recommend judging potential HVAC systems on the following criteria: energy efficiency, capacity, maintenance requirements, noise level, cost, and thermostat compatibility. Comparing candidates using these criteria will help you find a unit that suits your home and personal preferences. For example, if minimizing your energy consumption is a priority, then you may look for an HVAC system with a SEER rating of 15 or above (these units tend to be the most energy-efficient). On the other hand, if noise level is a concern, you may choose a unit that operates silently. Budget is also a priority for many people. It’s best to determine a budget you’re comfortable with before shopping. If possible, don’t choose a unit solely for its price, as cheap units tend to be less energy-efficient which may cost you more money in the future.
Overall, it’s up to each individual Arnprior homeowner to decide which HVAC system is right for them. But if you’re having trouble deciding and would like a professional opinion, call Anchor Home Comfort. One of our experienced HVAC technicians can provide their opinion on the best HVAC system for your needs.
How do I know if my HVAC system is working properly?
One way to tell if your HVAC system is working properly is to book a maintenance appointment. Anchor Home Comfort offers maintenance services for all types of HVAC units. Experts recommend having your system serviced annually to prevent long-term problems and ensure optimal performance. Other benefits of regular maintenance are that these tune-ups can prolong the life of your HVAC system and increase its energy efficiency (thereby saving you money on your monthly energy bills). Therefore, one of the best ways to know if your HVAC system is working properly is to have it assessed by one of Anchor Home Comfort’s fully licensed and certified technicians during a maintenance appointment.
The second way to know that your HVAC system is working properly is if you don’t notice anything to indicate otherwise. Typically, if an HVAC system isn’t functioning properly, you’ll notice something off. Telltale signs indicating your system isn’t working properly may include a buzzing or rattling sound coming from the system, visible rust or cracks on the system’s surface, your furnace only blowing cool air or your air conditioner only blowing warm air, humidity levels that are off in your home, rooms heating unevenly, or an unexpected rise in your utility bills. If you haven’t noticed any of these signs, then your HVAC system is likely in good working order. But if you have, then contact Anchor Home Comfort right away.
Anchor Home Comfort specializes in HVAC repairs, installations, and maintenance. Plus, we offer 24/7 HVAC repairs to all Arnprior residents. And there are no extra fees for weekend, holiday, after hours, or emergency service calls. We’re always there when you need us.
When should I change my HVAC system?
Experts recommend changing your HVAC system every 10 to 20 years. Air conditioners and furnaces are generally designed to last between one and two decades. If you aren’t sure whether it’s time to change your current HVAC system, book a maintenance appointment with Anchor Home Comfort. A licensed and certified technician will come to your home and assess your system before offering their professional opinion on whether your current system needs to be replaced.
How often does my HVAC system need maintenance?
Experts agree that HVAC systems need regular maintenance to function optimally. Regular maintenance typically means having your HVAC system serviced once a year. During a maintenance appointment, an Anchor Home Comfort technician will come to your home to assess your system. Specifically, they will inspect the thermostat, air conditioner, and heating system and calibrate them as needed, lubricate all moving parts in the systems to decrease friction, check the air filter, cleaning and replacing it if necessary, test the unit’s safety controls and startup cycle, and complete a written analysis of the service’s findings. As you can see, Anchor Home Comfort conducts thorough maintenance services so that we can ensure your system is in good working order before leaving.
How much does an HVAC installation cost in Arnprior?
The cost of HVAC installation in Arnprior varies as it is dependent on several factors. One such factor is the type of HVAC system you’re installing. Boiler, heat pump, water heater, air conditioner, and furnace installations do not all cost the same amount of money. Further, the price of installation can also differ between the same types of units, as some models may be more complicated (and therefore expensive) to install. Two other factors used to determine the price of your Arnprior HVAC installation include the size of your home and the age and condition of your home’s ductwork.

Homes in Arnprior are largely heated by furnaces, with natural gas-based furnaces being the most popular heating system. However, your Arnprior home may also be heated by an alternative heating system like baseboard heaters, solar heaters, heat pumps, and boilers.

“So glad my wife and I went with Anchor for our furnace and air conditioner replacement. They were very competitively priced. We have been long time Anchor customers. They have always been easy to deal with. The installation crew (Chris Dixon, Chris, and Joe) were extremely professional and pleasant, despite the sweltering heat they had to work in. They were very accommodating to my requests, and definitely wanted to make sure I was satisfied before leaving. Couldn’t recommend them enough, excellent work! I was so happy to be able to remain with a local company.”
